Thank you for your review of Eastnor Castle; we're pleased you enjoyed your day out. We do open all of the state rooms inside the Castle when we are open to the public; Eastnor Castle is still a family home however so there is a private wing where the owners of the castle live. More

We didn't get to see much of the grounds but the interior is beautiful and has been lovingly maintained. The staff was very friendly. A wonderful sight for a wedding!!

Lovely day out with grandchildren. We all enjoyed it, Making dens in the woods, exploring the house searching for the hidden mice. Lots of things to keep all engaged and no computers needed. All included in admission price.

Took the family which included 2 small children. Beautiful setting with stunning views from the castle terrace across the lake. Very good playground for the children. As we arrived mid afternoon did not really have time to visit the interior of the castle. We did however arrive in time watch the "duck herding" on the lovely lawn area. Never seen... More

Attended as a wedding guest - what a stunning venue, good food, good service. Organisation very slick. Only complaint would be the dungeon loos, down narrowsteps into a not very salubrious toilet.

Visited as a family of 4 adults and one dog. We enjoyed the lovely walks around the grounds and we were very pleased the dog was also allowed into the house. Lunch was good and priced as would be expected, not cheap but didn't break the bank. The staff were very friendly, helpful and genuinely wanted to know if we... More

Really enjoyed this with 7 and 3 year old! Junior course, adventure playground, tree trail, beautiful walk around the lake and the castle itself is fascinating. The staff here are very friendly and full of information, they also really engaged with my children who loved it. Highly recommend excellent value for money.

Visited the castle and grounds for something to do with my daughter and granddaughter. The castle was smaller on the inside than it looks on the outside and seems like a more modern castle than an old one. We went in the maze but needed the granddaughter to get us out, she seems to have a built in sat nav... More
